Official: Palermo sign Gonzalez

Palermo have officially signed Costa Rica and Columbus Crew defender Giancarlo ‘Pipo’ Gonzalez.

The deal was done over the last few days, but today he passed a medical and signed a three-year contract.

He won’t be available for training yet, as he has returned home to complete the necessary red tape.

Gonzalez impressed at the World Cup with Costa Rica and arrived for a reported €3.8m.

That would make him the most expensive defender in MLS history.
